Nonprofit CFO of the Year Awards

October 24, 2017, The Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC

About The Event

Each year the CFO Awards recognize the often unsung leadership role CFOs have in the important works nonprofits do, working generally behind the scene as a key supporter of the executive director, to keep the organization moving forward.

Co-founded in 2006 by Tate & Tryon and West, Lane & Schlager, this annual event recognizes and honors the contributions of nonprofit financial executives who demonstrate a vision for operational excellence, innovation in finance and management, exceptional leadership and commitment to improving accountability. The nonprofit CFO role has evolved from simply a number cruncher to a big-picture thinker involved in nearly every facet of the organization. Today, CFOs are increasingly involved in setting operational strategy and serving as a strategic leader and advisor to the CEO and board. Despite this expanding role, the contributions of the CFO are often overlooked and rarely recognized.

For this reason, the Nonprofit CFO of the Year Awards were founded.
